In-charge of Tulip Garden, Inam-ul-Rehman said that preparations like horticulture, engineering, fungicide treatment, spraying of nutrients and minor repairs have been done by us before the tulip show. The garden is open to the public. He said that apart from 1.6 million (16 lakh) tulips of different colours, spring flowers, such as hyacinths, daffodils, muscari and cyclamen, will be displayed.

Apart from 68 varieties of tulips, attractive flowers of daffodil, hyacinth, muscari will be the center of attraction in Asia’s largest tulip garden. But this time special arrangements have been made to make the garden more attractive. Deputy Director of Indira Gandhi Tulip Garden, Ikhlas Shaik said that four new tulip varieties have been imported from Holland, due to which the garden has flourished.

Last year, a record 3.60 lakh tourists came here. Situated in the foothills of the Jabarwan hills on the banks of Srinagar’s famous Dal Lake, the Tulip Garden is spread over an area of about 30 hectares.

Spring season is starting early in Kashmir. This year, apart from four new varieties of tulips, more than 1.5 million tulips in bloom will be on display. This year, during the winter season, more than one lakh tourists had come to witness the snow in the Kashmir Valley. Their number is likely to increase manifold in the coming days.

Tourists will be able to admire tulips from 9 am to 7 pm
